Analysts have begun scrutinizing the speechifying at both the Demo and Repub Conventions and both parties paraded a pack of Pinocchios.
Biden told the world that Obama would save American families big money on healthcare...he forgot to tell the families that the savings would go to the government and not to them! Unless Senator Clinton was being facetious... who? her? when she said that she cannot wait for Obama to sign a bill granting healthcare to all Americans...she will have a long wait since none of Obama's proposal come close!
Repubs had their share of fibbers. sarah Palin, good Christian woman who believes that God sent us to the war in Iraq boasted( a sin according to the New testament) that she rejected Federal money for the so-called bridge to nowhere. In fact she supported the wasteful project until it appeared unlikely that the federal money was available. The she rejected the rejected funds!?
The biggest liar of all was the Republican who is on his third marriage and whose grown children will not speak to him. Yes, the man who parlayed 9-11 into a multi-million dollar security consultancy and is now selling US forfeited real estate to foreign countries.
Rudy Guiliani told a whale of a tale about Obama's response to Russia's invasion of Georgia. Herr Rudolf said that Obama claimed that each side was equally resonsible. Lie! Obama on the day of the inavasion blamed Russia.Guiliani lied also when he said that Obama changed his mind twice about the crisis in three days and finally imitated McCain.
Obama and MCCain had the identical responses to the critical situation from day one and Rudy's mockery of Obama's suggestion that the UN Security Council could help, should also have been directed at the candidate he was endorsing since both candidates shared this suggestion from the start!
